(Newser) – Frantic Democrats are circulating a 2008 interview in which Scott Brown insinuated that Barack Obama was born out of wedlock. While discussing Bristol Palin's pregnancy during the Republican convention, Brown drew a parallel to Obama's mother, who was 18 when he was born. When another interviewee on the program noted that she was married, Brown responded, "Well, I don't know about that" and laughed.

Asked today whether he would apologize for the remark, Brown responded, "I was asked whether the president’s parents were married. I said I didn’t know." See the video above, or click here.
